Dear Fellow Texans,
My name is Jimmie Don Aycock and I served in the Texas House of Representatives from 2007 to 2017. I’m known for my work as Chair of the House Public Education Committee, where we did our best to enact sound policy to help the 5+ million students in Texas public schools.
While I am no longer in the Legislature, I am still interested in the education of Texas children. Money is not the only factor in education, but it is important! With this in mind, I have decided to continue to work on school finance issues. I hope to use this site to have a positive impact on the complicated discussions that surround how we fund education in Texas.
This site’s tagline has always been: “Unfiltered Conversation on Public Education in Texas.”
